    Anybody know of a source for a new-in-box G19 with Austrian proof marks? Have started thinking recently that this would be a good addition to the collection. Thanks!

    I located one NIB at a local retailer for someone on GT recently.

    Most of that run have sold out from the "big" online shops. I do see them sometimes at smaller gun stores, I even found a used one already.

    There are some on GB now and then. Do a "Glock 19 Austrian" search and see what pops up. Also open every Glock 19 auction and look very closely at the pics, sometimes sellers only see the gun and don't really mention the markings and to some the marking mean nothing.

    Not to me but some...

    Just got one today, a blue label NIB. Its actually consecutive serial numbered to the other one I already have. Same shop doesn't sale many blue labels in 9mm, mostly .40, so it was still around to get.

    Can you please reply with the name/phone number of the shop? Do you happen to know if they have another?

    Sorry, it was the last one they had. I bought the other one back when these were first hitting the market. That shows how long its sat there. I'll double check Monday, they're not open on Sundays. Are you eligible for a blue label?

    Thank you. I would very much appreciate a heads-up if it turns out that another one is available. I can arrange for a blue label if necessary, yes.

    In the meantime, I wonder if one of you with this specific model could take a look at your frame rails and let me know what you see. Machined like the first picture, or plated like the second? Thanks!

    Well its hard to tell fom your pics the real difference, one picture (#2) seems to have a more pronounced center line or slit.

    I have 3 of these G19's, and was able to look at two of them and while I can't be absoultely sure they appear more like picture # 1, machined and not plated. But I'm not sure.

    Hope this helps.

    The rails are NOT machined. They are built like every new 3rd Gen Glock. Just different markings.

    Thanks much guys. I have a Gen 3 G26 as well as a G39 (both in the serial number "H" range). They both have machined rails. Was hoping these G19's pre-dated the rail change, but it appears not. Thanks again for looking.

    They are much newer, I think in the K range.
